It has been quite a while since I have had time to post. It is amazing what you can do when you have to. Since Ian was born, just over 4 months ago, I've been doing things that I haven't done in years. There have been some ups and downs since Ian arrived and I was able to step up and help out. I surprised even myself.
Having Ian in my life has been a great joy. He is always smiling and happy. I have been here in DC with him all but 2 weeks and 4 days of his life. I have watched my daughter bloom into a wonderful mother and my son in law a wonderful involved father.
Next week Kim's best friend will begin to take care of Ian and another 4 month old as part of a nanny share. My role will begin to wain. It is great that things have stabilized but I will miss being here every day seeing everything that Ian does.
